When Karen expressed interest in our brainstorming session, I quickly invited her to join in the fun. Wouldn't it be cool to just sit down together, drink tea, eat cake and conjure all sorts of crazy ideas? Who knows what we may come up with? If you throw enough crap up the ceiling, some may stick (or so the saying goes... I think).
As it turns out, she would love to join us but her boss and big boss are in town, so she's in for a really busy week. In fact, this corporate madness is also driving her crazy. She's beginning to question if this is the way she want to live her life.
Ironically, best friend is only available this week because for once, all her bosses are out of town. Her schedule is so packed, it is near impossible for me to even have lunch with her on a normal day.
For once, I am glad I'm not such a high flier like these two ladies. In fact, I'm happy with my slow pace of life. I have the luxury of getting home early everyday to prepare dinner, walk the dog and even do a spot of shopping during office hours. I don't have to apply annual leave, do budgeting and presentations or report to any bosses.
In other words, I may not earn quite as much but I can eat as many snakes (skive) as I want. Come to think of it, life is pretty kind to me. I'm a happy snake eater!
